Thank You and Pushing it a Little

Hello ...
We're having some lovely weather here ... I'm not one for sitting in the sun much and my little craft space is cool with a view of the garden so I'm really enjoying it ...
I'm off to Lincoln again at the weekend ... going to have some time with my lovely Aunt ... But right now I'm up to my neck in making the project for my sweet group tonight. I've decided that we will be making flower pot cards ... you guys are the best for inspiration ... 

I have been so fortunate this week ... an honourable mention at both CASology and Shopping our Stash ... I'm over the moon!


So I took a break from cutting flowers, leaves and plant pots to make a card for the new challenge at CASology .... Now that's where I'm pushing it a little ... the theme is "Wheels" Do Pinwheels count?


Shopping Our Stash are challenging us to create without using any DP ... So my Pinwheel is all fabric - even the sentiment is on a piece of ribbon and I did do some dry embossing but I'm not sure it shows up too well ...


Lessology are asking for "Beads" ... There are little pearl beads on my flower and I did use a left over scrap of fabric ...

Ok, play time is over -  I have 25 bows to make now ... 

Have a beautiful day and keep safe

In my book, pinwheels count and count big time when they are this incredibly gorgeous! This is really stunning, Ros, especially in those wonderful lavender hues. Wouldn't they be the best favors at a wedding? Have a great weekend! xxoo Darnell

Ros! I LOVE IT! Pinwheels have got to be the most clever interpretation of 'wheels'! (and since I just had a shout-out at CASology too, I have to say SQUEE! I am still on cloud 9!)
